Wedded 'Bliss'

Ok girls....time to get excited. If you are like me, you have pulled wedding dress inspiration from the amazing Monique Lhuillier. Inspiration because her dresses are beautiful but slightly out of reach financially. Well, she has done something so lovely....she's appealing to the masses with her new 'Bliss' line of dresses. The line will offer the same trademark styles but the price will range from a reasonable $2,300-3,500. 15 available styles will be available soon at Monique Lhuillier retailers worldwide.
Friends and crazy good photographers, Kristin and Jared Spencer, are currently in NYC bridal fashion week. A whopping 42 runway shoots! If they snap some shots of the line, I'll try and get a picture to post.

As promised

Here are some of the fabulous photos from the Out of the Box event captured by the very talented Julie Dentt of Journey of the Lens. Thank you again to the girls at Posh Paperie, Sweet and Saucy Shop and Wine Steals Point Loma. A very special thank you to the creative team of Carter and Cook Event Company for asking me to join them for such a fun event.

Long overdue pictures from the DWR in-store event.

My deconstructed store bought bouquet from Seaside Market, plus some left over orchids and callas.

Test tube vases at checkout with a single calla lily.

More callas.
The glamorous white phalaenopsis orchid under the much desired cellula chandelier.

Succulents! Love em.

The extras....awww.

creative minds

I had the pleasure of creating a centerpiece for a tablescape designed by the incredibly creative team of Carter and Cook. The intimate event, which took place at the Wine Steals in Point Loma, was an opportunity to meet some of the industry's up and coming elite. The girls of Posh Paperie were on hand to display their custom holiday cards, gift tags, and invitations. Guests devoured custom desserts from Sweet and Saucy Shop that tasted as good as they looked. The whole evening was captured by the lovely Julie Dentt of Journey of the Lens. Please take some time to check out these amazing businesses and the talented girls behind them! Pictures to follow...
